The goal of Hockey for Heroes is to support Ukrainian sports in such a difficult time. Because of this, we have organized a charity hockey tournament that will allow the Krarkiv Berserkers to travel to the United States and compete in a global hockey showcase tournament against teams from the USA and Canada. The tournament will be held:
• In Chicago (State of Illinois)- March 13, 2023

• In Tampa (State of Florida) - March 26, 2023
All the proceeds before and during those events will be used for renewal of sport infrastructure and recreation centers in Ukraine. Every child deserves a happy childhood. Please join us and support the children of Ukraine!

Hockey for Heroes is an initial event created by Help Heroes of Ukraine for the purpose of providing relief to the Berseks hockey organization after their rink was hit by a Russian missile. These young men and women have been traveling around the country trying to find sources to get back on the ice to enjoy the game they love. We saw an opportunity to provide a 3 week event for these brave men and women here in the USA and promote the substantial devastation the war has caused. We/CDT will be providing the Berserks 2 showcase weeks of games in Chicago and Orlando with our teams and other international teams. All proceeds will be dedicated to rebuilding Ukraine, providing essential humanitarian aid, helping rebuild their rink and organization and providing Help Heroes of Ukraine with their long term mission. This is the first of many events to come with our counterparts in Ukraine.
Help Heroes of Ukraine, Inc. NFP’s mission initially is to provide intervention for the people of Ukraine during and after the war with Russia. We will provide tangible assistance to struggling families, elderly, refugees, handicapped people and people in danger in all regions of Ukraine, as well as those in all countries taking in and assisting refugees.
